Student-Athlete Participation Information and Forms
Welcome to the 2012-13 academic year! We look forward to another great year of Triton Athletics. Please read the following information to ensure you are aware of NCAA requirements.
Graduation Rate and Academic Success Rate

NCAA Initial Eligibility Standards
In order to be eligible for practice and competition at a Division II institution, incoming freshmen student-athletes must meet the NCAA’s initial eligibility standards. These standards consist of a combination of a core course pattern, GPA and SAT/ACT scores. Please click here for further information on NCAA initial eligibility requirements.
For questions regarding NCAA reporting or eligibility standards please contact Katie McGann, Associate Athletics Director, 858.534.8700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drug Testing Information
The NCAA randomly selects institutions and student-athletes for drug testing throughout the academic year, including the summer. All student-athletes are subject to drug testing before, during or after their competitive seasons. Student-athletes need to be aware of the NCAA Banned Drugs list and should check with the Athletic Trainers for any questions. Click here for the 2012-13 NCAA Banned Drugs list. Student-athletes who test positive are subject to at least a one-year suspension and loss of eligibility.
Many nutritional/dietary supplements contain NCAA banned substances. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not strictly regulate the supplement industry; therefore the purity and safety of nutritional/dietary supplements cannot be guaranteed. Impure supplements may lead to a positive drug test. The UC San Diego Athletics Department does not condone the use of nutritional/dietary supplements and the use of such supplements is at the student-athlete’s own risk. Student-athletes should contact Head Athletic Trainer Kevin Messey (email@example.com) or Director of Strength and Conditioning Rudy Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information.
Further information may also be found through the Center for Drug Free Sport, which sponsors a confidential Resource Exchange Center (REC) for student-athletes and athletics staff with questions about nutritional supplements The REC may be contacted toll free at 877.202.0769 or at the following link.
